“Sana Mir Tips Sri Lanka and Scotland for Upsets at Women’s T20 World Cup!”

Pakistan legend Sana Mir has made bold predictions for the upcoming ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, tipping Sri Lanka and Scotland to be the dark horses capable of causing major upsets in the tournament scheduled for October.

Sri Lanka emerged victorious in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2024 final against Scotland, winning by 68 runs. Despite the loss, both teams secured qualification for the Women’s T20 World Cup 2024 in Bangladesh, prompting Sana to highlight their potential in the main event.

Impressed by Sri Lanka’s flawless performance throughout the qualifier, Sana sees their recent success against strong international teams as a positive sign for their prospects in the T20 World Cup. Led by the heroics of captain Chamari Athapaththu, Sri Lanka’s dominant run, including victories over South Africa and New Zealand, suggests they could be a force to be reckoned with.

Sana emphasized Athapaththu’s pivotal role in the team and believes her performance could elevate Sri Lanka’s chances in Bangladesh. With a challenging group comprising Australia, India, Pakistan, and New Zealand, Sri Lanka has the potential to surprise and possibly secure a spot in the semi-finals.

Similarly, Sana acknowledged Scotland’s impressive performance in the qualifier, especially their victory over Ireland in the semi-finals, which secured their spot in the T20 World Cup. Despite missing out on the final due to injury, captain Kathryn Bryce played a significant role in Scotland’s success, both with the bat and ball.

Sana commended Bryce and her team for exceeding expectations and emphasized the importance of preparation leading up to the main event. With Bangladesh, England, South Africa, and the West Indies in their group, Scotland has the opportunity to cause upsets with the right preparation and strategy.

As the brand ambassador of the tournament, Sana wished both Sri Lanka and Scotland the best of luck in their exciting journey and encouraged them to make the most of the time leading up to the event to prepare effectively.
